“It is pleasure to work with Anniwaa, as she is exceptionally talented, versatile and intelligent. She mentors 50 of our young people in the Mid City area of Los Angeles and finds remarkable ways to engage and invigorate our students to push boundaries and achieve their best. Anniwaa is a truly inspirational individual and dedicated to creating opportunities for communities. As a Ghanaian-British actress, her presence in our workshops provides our children with the hope and belief that nothing is impossible; it is not where you start, but where you finish that matters…..In an industry dominated by white males, it is important that we support an actress like Anniwaa who is unswervingly committed to her craft and determined to inspire young actors.”
The Legend of Hamba – 2014 , A Tiata Fahodzi production
‘The Legend of Hamba’ is conceived as a 20-30 minute physical picaresque, loosely based on the ‘The Everyman’ Morality Play. It follows the fortunes of a central character, Hamba, through three ‘Ages of Man’: The Ages of Conquest, Excess and Harvest. Anniwaa performed the lead role of pride.
Afridiziak: “This play is an experience, perfect for the outdoors and a great way to spend part of a sunny afternoon. Yes it’s weird and at times confusing but isn’t that what life’s journey is? Hamba just happens to make a lot of noise whilst going through it! I would definitely encourage people to go along and experience “The Legend of Hamba” for themselves.” For the full review, click here.

“Her dedication to the role throughout the intensive development process and her commitment while shooting was of the highest level and her performance in the film is truthful and compelling. Anniwaa has an original voice and natural talent.”
Bafta Nominated British Film Director
“Not only is she a hard-working and consummate actress but she has shown astounding dedication to ensuring that theatre plays a crucial role in cultural discourse. In her capacity as a theatre maker she has proven to be dedicated, determined and is a true inspiration to theatre makers of her generation. She continues to excel in her craft and I hold her in the highest regard both personally and professionally.”
“I have worked with Anniwaa twice, she always does an excellent job proving herself to be a highly skilled, professional and reliable actress. Anniwaa is intelligent and competent and I would have no hesitation in both recommending her to others.”
“Anniwaa Buachie’s laudable ambition was realised with an assured production of seven new plays by seven young writers on Monday night at Theatre 503 ( Golden Delilah 7:1 Beyond Control). Playing to packed houses over two sittings, Anniwaa had also assembled an array of directing and acting talent, many of them garlanded with awards (she herself the recipient of the Alan Bates Outstanding Newcomer Award) which fulfilled Golden Delilah’s aim to produce new writing promoting strong female roles.”
“She is a hardworking actress, willing and able to rise to any challenge. Her infectious positivity, lucidity and conspicuous aptitude contributed to a successful production. She is a strong inspirational force, an oracle to actors! Anniwaa has a remarkable talent.”
